This is an alternative version by Sektor of Dopefish's modified version of Sektor's dualHexen, a dual-screen port of Hexen to the Nintendo DS. Not tested but should be Sudokuhax/iEvo DSi mode compatible.

It was entered into the 2009 best DS homebrew contest.

Installation

Note: You will need to prepare your own WAD in order to play this game.

Download and extract hexenDS.nds to the apps folder of your card.

DLDI patch it (if you have a GBAMP, M3CF, SCCF, SCSD or DS-X then you don't need to use the DLDI patch) and put it in your card.

Copy the legaly owned copy of HEXE.WAD (19MB+) to the root of your card.

It should say LOADING. There is no progress bar.
